University hosting police training Sept. 22-23

Posted 08/08/14

Fitchburg State University will host a two-day training course in September to teach proactive survival strategies in violent intruder or active shooter situations.

The ALICE training—which stands for alert, lockdown, inform, counter and evacuate—is designed for law enforcement officials as well as school, church, hospital and workplace administrators and employees. The program is designed to provide training that will bridge the gap between the time a violent event begins and law enforcement arrives.

The upcoming session, hosted by the Fitchburg State University Campus Police, is designed to teach instructors who will then go back to their sending organizations to administer further training.

The ALICE course will run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Sept. 22 and Tuesday, Sept. 23 at Room G01 in Hammond Hall on the Fitchburg State campus. Registration is $495 per participant.
